Latest Review Posted Carl Zeiss Jena 135mm F3.5 Sonnar MC - Zebra
I got this lens as part of a Praktica MTL5 bundle, as well as a bunch of other M42 primes. This is the crown jewel of this bundle, and I really like the colour rendition of this lens. The bokeh is also very smooth, making it an excellent portrait lens.

There is one thing to be wary of if considering one of these. I have the version with Praktica electrical connectors, which short out the electrical connectors on my K-r in a weird way. I do get focus confirm when using the OVF. However, when in Live View (LV), the play of the lens (such as when focusing) causes the electrical connectors to be shorted weirdly, which in turn turns off LV. I only realized when doing a head shot portrait indoors and using LV to get the eyes in focus. To fix it I used aluminium foil. I haven't had this problem with any other M42 lenses.
